Skin Cancer Overview

The health of your skin is our number one priority. It is the foundation of your appearance now and in the future.  We want you to be happy with how you look so let’s start with the basics: loving your skin by looking after it

It is important that adults have annual skin checks to get advice about skin health and for early diagnosis of Skin Cancer.  There is no minimum age for skin checks. If you have a concern about any member of your family, get it checked out professionally.


Dr Eddie Roos & Dr Albert Vermeulen have a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of Skin Cancer.  An annual skin check at the Toowoomba Skin Cancer Clinic includes a systematic examination where you will be given a report on the state of your skin with advice for treatment and care.   Any lesions that need specific monitoring will be scanned for future reference. 

Our doctors provide surgical removal, cryotherapy, laser ablation and Photodynamic Therapy of skin lesions.  The high demand for cosmetic mole removal makes this treatment a constant and integral part of the practice.  Anything that is surgically removed from your skin will be sent to pathology so that a thorough and proper diagnosis can be made.

We can’t stress it enough: prevention is better than cure!   Please be committed to protecting your skin from the sun to reduce your chances of developing Skin Cancer and skin damage such as pigmentation and wrinkles.
